from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 209:

In aft. help Robert a bit with School time-table, & listen (pt. time in garden) to Vienna Phil. Orch. from Albert Hall (under Bruno Walter - who annoys me so much) - light, mostly Strauss & Suppé Waltzs - very beautifully played.
